PMID:  3977467     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The clinical management of massive hemoptysis in patients with cystic fibrosis proceeds according to the following paradigm. The site of bleeding is identified by bronchoscopy, ideally under general anesthesia. Then selective bronchial arteriography is performed. If collaterals to the spinal cord are visualized, arterial embolization is abandoned and pulmonary resection is undertaken within the limits of pulmonary function.
